Talk:Amrit Varsha (अमृत वर्षा)

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This book, Varsha, is in some ways a companion volume to Amrit Dwar (अमृत द्वार), both being six-discourse collections of Osho's responses to seekers' questions in Pune and Mumbai. Drawing on that similarity, it may be reasonable to suppose that the talks were given, like Dwar's, in the late 60s, though in this case we have no e-book to validate that. There IS a Varsha e-book among those listed in Osho World's collection, but it is not available.

Varsha demonstrates a curious flip-side compared to Dwar in regard to audio availability. Where Dwar's audiobook version has one less track than the free download versions -- the much more common discrepancy -- Varsha's audiobook version has one more, with the freebie sites offering only five. It is not out of the question that the extra discourse in the six-track audiobook collection is a kind of mistake, but it may also be "just" a Mystery. -- Sarlo (talk) 11:25, 17 June 2014 (PDT)

Most of them missing in Timeline.--DhyanAntar 16:01, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

Yes, so it's time to put them IN the Timeline. Observations in square brackets above look reasonable. There is an alternative possibility for #6, which is that it was a separate discourse in the same venue but pm after an am talk. This is also reasonable but there are other indications: two sources have Varsha #6 the same as a talk from other books. Shifting content in Hindi books (source document) has it the same as both Aath Pahar Youn Jhumte (आठ पहर यूं झूमते) #1 and Jeevan Ki Kala (जीवन की कला) #3; and Talk:Agyat Ki Or (अज्ञात की ओर) has it the same as Agyat #6 and JKK #3. So we can leave it out for now. -- doofus-9 01:21, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

On second thought, the Timeline is a bit crowded around Jun 19-20 1965 in Mumbai, and 1965 is not very crowded in general. There are already two talks on the 18th and two more on the 19th from Amrit Ki Disha (अमृत की दिशा). A third on the 19th would not be impossible but i don't feel to strain against what's already there. It too is uncertain, and sourced to Jagdish, but enough of this for today. (There's also another talk on the 20th in Mumbai that two different sources agree is from another series that Jagdish puts in Punjab, though without a date, but that's another story.) -- doofus-9 05:05, 31 December 2018 (UTC)
